I came to see Kate for ovarian cysts: Western medicine could not do anything for them. Also, my last period was so painful, I had to take 2 Tylenols and two ibuprofens simultaneously and I was still in pain. After a series of questions that Kate asked it became clear that I was too cold when my last period started â€“ in Eastern medicine it is important to stay warm on that day. Kate gave me two herbal mixtures â€“ one for my cysts, and another â€“ to â€œwarm upâ€ my uterus from overcooling. It really helped with my periods â€“ I donâ€™t have the awful debilitating pain I had before. Ovarian cysts took a bit longer to treat, but after 3-4 months of taking herbal supplements and coming for acupuncture treatment twice a month they are gone, too. Thank you, Kate!!
